SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We have just setup Sharepoint 2010 internally for testing and development.

I created a simple document library, and mapped it up in Windows Explorer.

It works OK - it's reasonably fast (at least after I disabled 'automatically detect settings' in Internet Explorer...) - however, when I create a new folder or a new textfile nothing happens until I hit f5 - then my new folder or file is instantly showing. I can hit F5 0.1 seconds after I created the folder and it shows instantly. But it does not show until I refresh.

I have tried on several machines. Any tips or suggestions?

It's not designed to reflect your changes immediately. The explorer view works like a network drive (webdav). I think webdav doesn't support pushing back changes to a client when they happen. And if it does; they didn't implement it. So I'm afraid your stuck F5-ing. –  Jasper Jun 21 '12 at 15:30

I'm a little confused about what you are asking.

  1. Are you saying that when you open the site in windows explorer, and then go to the website in your browser and while on the website in your browser you create a new folder or file, that folder or file doesn't appear in windows explorer until you hit F5?

  2. Are you saying that when you open the site in windows explorer, and while in windows explorer you right click and create a new folder or file, that folder or file doesn't appear on the website in your browser until you hit F5?

  3. Are you saying that when you open the site in windows explorer, and while in windows explorer you right click and create a new folder or file, that folder or file doesn't appear in windows explorer until you hit F5?

If you are saying #3, which I verified works as expected for me, what version of windows are you using?
